Subject: RE: Tune Req: British Canal/Waterway Songs
One point of interest is that there are NO Traditional Canal songs !
The Boaters worked far to hard to write any , and rarely got together to socialise , so all the 'Old' songs were composed (Like Birmingham Lads ) for a Canal opening , or are recent in the Traditional Idiom (As Jon Raven and David Blagrove) .
